For several days next week, visitors to Las Vegas will put aside gambling and get a chance to help the disaster victims in Japan. The IPC Foundation Silent Auction will be held at the IPC APEX EXPO in Las Vegas on April 12-14, 2011 with proceeds to benefit the IPC Foundation, including for academic scholarships. In addition, IPC will be raising funds for the Japanese Red Cross through a charity raffle with a grand prize of a $2,000 American Express gift card, donated by IPC. All raffle proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross. IPC is a global trade organization devoted to printed-circuit-board (PCB) manufacturing and technologies.
